Gear up for paddle sports and let’s start having fun! Our Divers Supply paddle sports essentials include all the equipment you need for kayaking, canoeing, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), and rafting. We have paddle sports gear for adults and children so that the whole family can take part in the sport.

It doesn’t matter if you're a beginner or an experienced paddler: we have the right gear for you that combines comfort, efficiency, and safety on the water.

Here’s a detailed look at the essential gear for paddle sports.

Paddles

Paddles are the tools you use to propel and steer your kayak, canoe, or paddleboard. They come in various shapes, sizes, and materials, each suited to different activities and personal preferences.

Kayak Paddles

Typically double-bladed, kayak paddles vary in length based on the width of the kayak and the paddler’s height. Materials range from aluminum and plastic (durable and affordable) to carbon fiber and fiberglass (lightweight and efficient).

Canoe Paddles

Single-bladed canoe paddles are shorter and wider, with different blade shapes (such as beavertail or square) for various paddling styles. Wood, fiberglass, and aluminum are common materials.

SUP Paddles

These are longer and feature a single blade. Adjustable SUP paddles are popular because they can accommodate different paddlers and conditions. They are usually made of carbon fiber and fiberglass, which makes them lightweight and stiff.

Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs)

A PFD, or life jacket, is an important piece of safety gear for any paddle sport. PFDs are designed to keep you afloat in the water and are available in different styles to suit various activities.

Kayak and Canoe PFDs

These are often designed with high backs to accommodate kayak seats and provide comfort while paddling. Look for PFDs with multiple adjustment points for a snug fit and pockets for convenience.

SUP PFDs

Lightweight and less bulky, these PFDs deliver freedom of movement and comfort. Inflatable belt PFDs are also popular SUP accessories among paddleboarders for their compact design.

Boats and Boards

You obviously need a new board for paddle sports. Which one, though?

Kayaks

Available in sit-on-top and sit-in designs, kayaks come in many types such as recreational, touring, whitewater, and fishing kayaks. Consider factors like stability, speed, and storage capacity.

Canoes

Ideal for carrying multiple passengers and gear, canoes are great for flatwater paddling and expeditions. They offer ample storage space and are typically open on top.

Paddleboards (SUPs)

Stand-up paddleboards come in different shapes and sizes, with inflatable and rigid options. Choose a board based on your intended use, such as touring, racing, yoga, or all-around paddling.

Safety and Navigation Gear

Water sports should always be safe. Let’s look at the safety gear available for paddleboarders.

Whistles

A whistle attached to your PFD is a simple but effective tool for signaling for help.

First Aid Kit

A waterproof first aid kit should always be around for minor injuries on the water.

Compass and GPS

You need a compass and GPS device for safer navigation in open waters.

Fins

Fins are a necessary accessory for both kayaks and paddleboards for tracking and stability in the water.

Kayak Fins

Also known as skegs or rudders, these fins help improve a kayak’s directional stability and control. A retractable skeg or a rudder system can be adjusted to match water conditions.

SUP Fins

SUP fins can maintain straight-line tracking and stability. They come in many shapes and sizes, with some boards featuring a single fin and others using a three-fin (thruster) setup. Removable and adjustable fins allow for customization based on paddling conditions and personal preference.

Pumps

You won’t go far without a pump to inflate your inflatable kayak, canoe, or SUP. They come in different types.

Hand Pumps

Manual hand pumps are portable and easy to use. They are ideal for on-the-go inflation. They come with high-pressure gauges to reach the right inflation levels.

Foot Pumps

Foot pumps offer a hands-free option and can be more comfortable for some users. They are efficient and easy to store.

Electric Pumps

For the ultimate convenience, electric pumps can rapidly inflate and deflate your gear with minimal effort. They are ideal for frequent users or if you are inflating larger vessels.

FAQs

What kind of footwear is best for paddle sports?

Water shoes or sandals with good grip and quick-drying capabilities are ideal. They protect your feet from sharp objects and provide traction on wet surfaces. Avoid flip-flops or shoes that can easily slip off.

How do I choose the right size paddleboard (SUP)?

Select a paddleboard based on your weight, height, and intended use (e.g., touring, racing, yoga). Longer, wider boards are more stable and better for beginners or yoga, while narrower, shorter boards are faster and more maneuverable for racing or surfing.

Why should I use fins on kayaks and paddleboards?

Fins improve tracking and stability and help you keep a straight course with less effort. On kayaks, skegs and rudders can be adjusted to match different water conditions. On paddleboards, fins help stabilize the board and make paddling more efficient.
